the speed limiter was probably removed when you got the tune!!

Speedo is inaccurate at that kind of speed.

Custom tunes generally don'r raise the limiter.

Never mind then.

(What'd the speedo show? probably closer to 180)

For those interested, the 'police mode' on the cluster actually shows accurate speed (it always agrees with my GPS).

Can be set using an OBD2 tool. Turns on a digital readout of your real speed (and a 'P'). Also turns the bottom right button on the cluster (dim - or trip) into a speed hold mode (press it and it remembers the speed you were doing).

Lookup the thread on 'scantool fun' details in there.

Note you loose you're odometer while the engine is running.
